Flu season is in full swing in Humble, TX and Wellspire Medical Group is here to help get your family through it. The flu is not to be taken lightly, it is a serious virus that has the potential to be life-threatening. Your best shot at protecting yourself and your family from catching the flu is by getting a 2019 flu shot in Humble, TX. While the flu shot can not guarantee you will not catch the flu, it will greatly reduce your chances of catching the flu this season. Even in strong and healthy adults who are not at risk for life-threatening consequences from the flu, the flu will be something you want to do everything you can in order to avoid this season. The virus comes on suddenly, with symptoms lasting between 5 and 10 days.

 

Patients who have contracted the flu will often have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, extreme body aches, fatigue, headaches, chills, and in some cases vomiting and diarrhea.

It is important that people belonging to these groups take flu season seriously to avoid serious medical concerns from the flu.
